Severn Estuary Forum 2018

*Making the Most of Our Estuary’s Resources*

Over 80 people attended the Partnership’s 13th annual Severn Estuary Forum this year for a day of discussion and debate on all things Severn Estuary. The event was intended for all those who are interested in learning about the latest research and policy developments involving the Severn Estuary and its future. The programme for this year’s Forum covered three themes: Connecting With Our Estuary’s Past; Our Estuary’s Resources; Planning for the Future. Opening remarks and a warm, inspiring welcome to Newport was provided by Councillor Jane Mudd, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Housing, Newport City Council.
